You all know about my problems with blisters. After my marathon, only 2 of my toes were blister free, and folks would give me looks of pity after glancing at my toes. Dan suggested I purchase Injinji socks (and he just posted a review a few days ago), and I ordered them a week ago. The socks individually wrap each toe, just like gloves wrap each finger. My 3 pairs arrived today, and I got to test them on my 6 miler this afternoon. Putting them on was a bit awkward, and I did not like the feeling of the sock material between my toes. Plus, even though I ordered the smallest size, my toes did not completely fill each of the toe compartments (I know, I have been cursed with skinny feet). However, as soon as I put my Asics on, my feet felt great, and I forgot about my previous concerns. The run went well, and I had NO BLISTERS after it, a complete miracle. Folks, the only way for me not to have blisters during the short runs is to wrap each toe into a bandaid. For long runs, forget about it, blisters are guaranteed. Will see how these socks will hold during the long runs, but for now, I am sold!
Oh, and check out how pretty they are. Injinji, you can always send me free samples, but even if you don't, I love you!
